“Archer” will live to fight — and presumably continue to be in a coma — for yet another day, as FXX has renewed the long-running animated send-up of spy movies and pop culture for an 11th season, which will air in 2020.

The network announced the renewal on Friday, just after the show’s San Diego Comic-Con 2019 panel.

“We are incredibly excited for our 11th season and look forward to Archer waking up from his coma and returning to a spy world that has continued without him for the past three years,” executive producer Casey Willis said in a statement.

What originally began as a sort of lampoon of “James Bond” and “Mad Men,” the series has since moved into parodies of other genres and settings. Most recently, it was dubbed “Archer: 1999” in the series’ Season 10, and saw the entire case reimagined as a crew space adventurers. (In reality, the title character has been in a coma for several seasons, with the genre shifts, basically, his coma delusions.)

The show’s voice cast includes H. Jon Benjamin as Sterling Archer, Aisha Tyler as Lana Kane, Jessica Walter as Archer’s mother Malory, Judy Greer as Cheryl/Carol Tunt, Chris Parnell as Cyril Figgis, Amber Nash as Pam Poovey, Adam Reed as Ray Gillette, and Lucky Yates as Algernop Krieger.

The show was created by Adam Reed and is executive produced by Reed, Matt Thompson and Casey Willis.
